To best explain what Permutations are in the context of the LQS Environment, it is better to first define what Constructs are. Constructs can best be described as Quantum Particles of Law, they are the fragments that form the elements of all Legal Permutations, Outcomes and Facts.
Using the Quantum Metrics (to be covered in Workflow 3), Constructs are analysed, and then each given a coherent, mathematically quantifiable value. The cumulative value of these Constructs (Sum), make up the value of a Permutation. Constructs are therefore Permutations (e.g. Facts), in fragmented form. Constructs are located in the Construct Grid which is to the right of the Permutation Grid.
We can therefore artificially synthesise Legal Permutations using these Quantum particles of Law. The manifest application of these particles vary, they can either reflect Action, Causality, Effect, Correlation or a combination of all of these applications.
First make sure that you have already quantified the case you are building Permutations for (covered in Workflow 1). Remember that essentially what you are doing is recounting “what happened” in the Case that you are analysing.
1. The first step is activating the Permutation you would like to build. Click on the Permutation you would like to build in the Permutation Grid and a pop up message will appear notifying you that the Permutation is now active.
